Jasper has his hands full. Finishing high school would be hard enough without a mother pushing him to overachieve, and his friends pushing drugs down his throat. And then there's his stepdad: moustache-wearing, patronising, and, as all the evidence suggests, a murderer. Hilarious and heartbreaking by turns, Grow Up is packed full of funny, smart, entertaining swagger. A comedy in three parts it also offers a revelatory portrait of the pills, thrills and bellyaches of growing up today.
